A Practical Demonstration of
Cooking by Electricity
In the modern cafe, at 1411
Pennsylvania avenue, of which
Mr. Gus Buchholz is the proprie
tor, electricity is put to many
different uses. Electric fans,
electric coffee percolators, elec
tric cigar lighter, electric lights,
and an electric elevator are some
of the things which it operates.
The. most interesting purpose,
however, which it serves at this
place is the cooking of food.
While the complete electric grill
and range were constructed es
pecially to meet the particular
needs of this cafe and to conform
to the ideas of the proprietor,
electric ranges and Cooking ap
pliances of stock steeS and pat
terns can be had which will meet
every requirement of the house
hold and of the usual restaurant
Electric cooking is most sani
tary no gases or odors to spoil
the flavor of the food. The elec
tricity is transformed into heat
that is loo per cent pure. Au
thorities on cooking tell us that
the most satisfactory results are
obtained from electricity, owing
to the uniformity and even dis
tribution of the heat.
